Premier MacLean Addresses Large

were in town on Saturday .evening to

congratulate him on?his attainment to
tft'^higli position he now holds. The
Premier" was accompanied by Major s;

One of.the largest turn-outs that has
assembled in Greenwood for a public
meeting in recent years greeted Premier
MacLean and Mr. D. McPherson, Local
Member, on Saturday- evening, last
when a packed house gathered to hear
tlieir speeches at the. Greenwood
Theatre. The: Premier was obviously
pleased to have such an opportunity to
meet his old constituents, who. came
from all portions of the 'District to
do him honour. It was the first; time
that he addressed a Greenwood, audience since his . elevation ; to the
premiership and the people of the old
Riding which first elected him to the
legislature seemed anxious, irrespective
of political':-; leanings, : to. congratulate
him on his promotion in the public
life of thisrprovince." Though Dr. Mac-
Lean has not had much time, to rest
since the close, of the recent session he
seemed in the best of. spirits * arid delivered an interesting, and well-reasoned
speech. ; .     '.'.���:"��� / ','"���' '        '".' .*'.':*:
Mayor Gulley presided and expressed,
the pleasure.of the people of Greenwood and District at haying Dr..Mac-
Lean with them again and he reminded the audience that ��� when they
first elected him they expected "that
he would make good and - he made'
good." The Mayor also referred to, Mr.
McPherson'as another, member who
was making good and who would bring
additional credit to the District.       >
"During the years since T wasjfirst
elected here-1 have spoken to: many
gatherings; in many places," said the
Premier, "but I can truthfully state
that in no place do I like to speak to
the people more than I'-do here. Tf I
made good in the service of .British
Columbia and if I have conducted
myself so as to deserve the honours
that have been, conferred upon me it
is due; in part at least, to the inspiration I received from you people among
whom"I lived, as' your neighbour, for
so many years." It had been suggested
that his health was not of the best but
he was glad to tell his old friends here
that "though I am not as young as I
used to be and have not, perhaps, as
many honest hairs on my head, I am
feeling fit enough to warrant me in expecting that I shall have a part in
British Columbia's public affiairs 'for
anqther twenty-five: years."
"At 'the < outset let me say that,
though the opponents of the. govem-
nient .needvmuch correcting, I am, not
going"tid unduly rcriticize tHerri''tbnight.
My duty, rather, is to explain to you
some of the things We have been doing
and our plans for the: future." The
premier 'reviewed conditions in B.C.
when .the Liberals took office and the
improvements since that time. They
had established peace in industry and'
both Capital and Labor were/now satisfied that both were getting' a square-
deal. "The confidence of the investors
of the world in the financial policies
and methods of this government is best
measured by the huge " amount of
monies being continually invested in
various underta,kings. We are spending lots of money for roads and^imilar
doing so in order to attract new-'
comers, to this province as well as to
take care of the,people we have. Our
opponents criticize in this respect and
state that we are spending too much,
but in all my experiences in politics I
have never yet found a man who
claimed that we were spending too
much in his own particular locality-
it is. always somewhere else."
The premier paid a tribute to the
Local Member, Mr. McPherson, against
whom he had but one complaint to
make���that he always wanted more
for his Riding that they could afford
to give him. . " ,     ; -.
Reduced  Taxes
In regard to taxation, substantial
^eductions had already been made and
the tendency was downward. "We collect more money now than the old
government did twelve years ago, but
the payment is made by a much wider
circle of people. Tlie province has
grown and we are doing more business;
production is greater and industry has
expanded, consequently we derive more
revenue." Dealing with the public
debt the premier, with school-room
simplicity, explained the position in
this way: "If a farmer owns a fully
equipped farm which': he can sell fo:
$13,500.00, and ��� he needs some ready
cash for a time, would it be a serious
matter for him to borrqw $680.00 on
the security of his property?" "That,"
said the Premier, "is exactly "the relationship between the assets and
liabilities of this province and I could
put my hand on $16,000,000.00 in cash
in the bank at Victoria tomorrow to
gpply against our debts. That is the
amount of our sinking funds."
The old. question of "Better Terms."
was discussed and Hon. Dr. MacLean
gave the greater part of the credit for
the successful outcome of .the efforts
for the return of the lands in the r-ail-
way belt and the Peace River Block to
the late Premier Oliver "but," he added,
"I think I can, without appearing
boastful, claim some part of the credit
for the Attorney-iGeneral and myself."
" No definite idea. was given by Dr.
MacLean as to the date of the coming
election. "It will take place some time
within a year or eighteen months and
in the meantime we are carrying on to
the best of our ability for '��� the best
interests qf all the people."
Local Member speaks.
Mr. McPherson delivered an able
speech in which he dealt with a
variety of matters of local interest and
he also gave a resume of conditions
and events which/he had been obliged
to face, for. the past three years. He
predicted -a substantial improvement
in industrial conditions, especially as
regards mining, in the Riding and congratulated those "who had always
persisted in believing that the District
would come back into the pay-roll
class." He paid a sincere compliment
to his leader; Dr. MacLean. "It was,
in my opinion," he declared, "a lucky
day for British Columbia when we laid
the burden of the Premiership on his
shoulders." He , predicted that Hon.
Dr. MacLean would make the "best
premier we have ever had." Proceeding,
he gave an outline of the work of a
legislator and the duties of a Member.
"There are no natural-born members
pf parliament, any more than natural-
born brick-laj'ers, doctors or engineers.
I have been at it for three years and,
notwithstanding my success in many
ways, I feel that I have been, .as It
were, learning the business at your expense," he said. .
Outline for Future Plans.
Mr. McPherson gave an interesting
outline of the plans for road construction, alterations, etc., which he had
been responsible for starting and those
he had in mind for the future. These
include, public works all through the
Riding,' from Christina lake to Carmi
and Bridesville. "This," he declared,
"is not an election programme; the
work, what-ever it may be that we
decide upon, will be done regardless of
whether there is an election this year
or not." So far as he was concerned,
said the speaker, he' did not care a,
great deal when the election came.
This, brought him to the point of dealing with the political and legislative
activities of the- Opposition. Assuring
the audience, that there was "nothing
personal" in his criticisms, *he flayed
the Tory spokesmen for having, as he
thought, converted the.House "into a
burlesque show." The. charges and
scandals brought up at the session of
1927 were briefly dealt with by, the
speaker, who also wished to know why
Hon. Dr. Tolmie, Conservative Leader,
had not taken advantage of one of the
numerous opportunities afforded him
,to take a seat in the legislature. "If
the government which I am supporting
is as bad as he says it is and if things
haye got to such a hopeless stage in
this province as he tries to haye us
believe, it seems to me," said Mr. McPherson, "that his duty was tp come
out here and do what he could to.
remedy matters -instead of washing, his"
time "three~"thousarid miles away." He
ridiculed the Tory claims of .."complete,
harmony" prevailing in the ranks of
.the party and referred to the fact that
within the past few days press despatches had indicated that neither Mr.
W. J. Bowser nor Mr. H. H. Stevens
would be in the running under the
Conservative banner in the coming
campaign. He was- convinced that
these gentlemen did riot wish to share
the blame for the disaster that is in
store "for their party under- the leadership of Dr. Tolmie.
After the meeting a dance was held,
Local, musicians were assisted by Mr.
J. _IL_Bush^and���Mr���E���-DeLisle~of~
Midway. , This combination seemed to
work a magic among the dancers. The
younger 'generation were having a
wonderful time. Then the enthusiasm
spread among the seniors. It wasn't
long till the hall was crowded. Refreshments were served in the Auxiliary Hall. They danced away until the
Master of Ceremonies had to explain it
was Saturday and past the hour of
midnight. The Home Sweet Home
Waltz was then played and the merrymakers dispersed each expressing their '
gratitude for the entertainment.

Protect Our Forest Resources
"Among tlie varied natural resources which go to make up Canada's
���enormous potential wealth, the forests occupy a most important place. As
'.ls:>iibw generally -known, Canada has within recent years moved into first
plkce among the nations of the world in the production of paper, having
��� passed the United ��� States which up to a few years ago was the word s
largest producer.   The great development of water powers, now so marked
���* feature of Canada's industrial progress, has been largely brought about
because of the'growth of the pulp and paper industry. This water power
.development is; however, vitally affecting the whole life of the Dominion.
yy. -Apart from the pulp and paper industry, the forests,have an influence,
���arid'play a direct  part  upon  practically  every  department _of  Canada s
-.national life whether it be the social, economic, financial, agricultural or.in-
..dustrlal. It is of the utmost importance, therefore, that the forests of Can-
ada be protected and conserved. _
In full realization of this fact, tlie Dominion Government has by royal
���proclamation issued by His Excellency the Governor-General, set apart the
-week of April 22 to 28 as "Canadian Forest Week." Statements contained
.in this'royal proclamation may serve to bring home to Canadians the'effect
and value of forests in ways to which they have given little thougnt. In this
'proclamation the following facts are emphasized:  , ..-'.'..���.
1. Our national income depends on our forest industries more than on
-any other source except agriculture. '
���     2    Our forest industries depend on the timber crops now standing ripe
in the forest, and their very existence is jeopardized  by any preventable
-wastage of'these supplies.   The future of the forest industries depends on
-the young growth and immature timber of today, and the prosperity ot these
industries will be in direct proportion to the care and. protection aitorded this
-,growing timber. " ..' ������
3 Our water-powers depend upon the stability of- stream flow
throughout the year, the equilibrium of which is disturbed by denudation of
���the forest cover in the drainage basins, resulting in alternate periods of
floods and low water.      , ���  .',"���''-���.,���
4.   Our irrigation works demand protection-forests are the .fountam-
ihead of irrigation. ' u y

This enormously valuable asset to any country���and Canada is among
the wealthiest in forest resources among the' nations . of the world���is
threatened by two dangers both .of which are man-caused and therefore preventable,���(1) Almost universal carelessness with lire in the forest, resulting in the destruction, not only of timber and young growth, but of the very
*soil which produces it, and "(2) the use of wasteful and destructive cutting
-methods without any thought of ensuring a new crop.

Lord  Grey  Refers  To . Sterling
Character   Of   Prince
Lord Grey of Fallodon, opening a
new institute and training centre for
the blind at, Leeds,- paid a tribute to
the late Prince Lichnowsky, who, lie
said, did a great   work   for   peace.
Lord Greysaid:'    '     '
Prince Lichnowsky, whom the lord
mayor very, truly ,described as a
great friend of mine, was the German ambassador in this country at
the time of the outbreak* of warl I
was. very closely associated with him
for two years. During the "London
confrence of 1912 I saw how earnestly^ he worked for peace, and. on
that occasion- happily with success. In 1914" he -worked no less
earnestly for peace, but was unable
to avert the catastrophe of war.
I will not say anything .for a moment today upon^ the question of war
responsibility.   There will always'be
a great propaganda on the  subject
which will do more to obscure than
to reveal the truth. Historians' will
differ in their accounts of trie causes
and the conduct of the war, .acdording
to their personal feelings and national prejudices; but I hope that history
will give-an honored place to the men
of high  position  who  did  all  they
could to avert - war, ���. and.. amongst
them    Prince    Lichnowsky's    name
must always have an honorable place.
We in this country should remember him favorably, because at a time
when in Germany the public men of
this country and British policy were
the subject-of intense misrepresentation he had the" courage and fairness
in   his  own   country  to   speak   the
I. trust that those
efforts for peace, though they ^failed
to avert the Great War, will not be
without fruit in an example for the
men of the same character and determination to. avert war.. will be found,
at momehts of political crises, in the
places of responsibility. I read with
deep regret news of his death, for he
did a great work for peace.���London

A Strain 0f Credulity and Superstition In Most People
It has been said with considerable
truth that it is possible to fool all the
people some time and some people all
the time. The reason lies in tlie fact
that there is a strain of credulity and
supeistition in mose people, and
greater in some than in others. Fakers of all time have- made use of
these "streaks" of human nature to
flimflam the public and to enrich
themselves., Let a man announce
himself, as a .professor of some sort
of applied monkeydoodleism or
other, with a string of letters after
his name that mean nothing, and.he
will invariably command a large following of disciples and adherents
whose itching ears are always open
to hear some new thing. Such people preserve in their hearts a'child-
'like belief in the philosopher's stone.
For some men and women the Fortunate Isles are forever just around
the corner, "where falls not rain, or
hail, or any snow, nor ever wind
blows loudly." They follow pathetically every "psychologist," and delude themselves with the hope that
somewhere some day they will find
one who' has the key to all knowledge, the secret of all success, the
cure for all human ills. The amazing
thing is that, no matter how often
shattered, their belief still persists.
The fact of the matter is that many
men and women would rather be deceived than have their illusions destroyed. It is people of this nature
who through all the ages have been
the prey of the charlatan and the
adventurer. In modern days they
talk glibly of. "psychology," and pretend that its application will heal the
ills of the soul, mend broken hearts,
and impart to any one the Midas
touch that turns all to gold. To see
the credulity of tlie multitude is to
come to the conclusion lhat Barnum
was not far wrong.���Toronto Globe.

Duty Not Gratitude
"Thc idea Uiat children should be

"is out of date." No such idea ever
was in. "Still children owe a debt to
parents they should pay. When children are little they are hard taskmasters, and when' parents are old,
they are hard taskmasters, and children should pay the natural debt of
nature to the extent of making the
parents as comfortable as the old can
be made; not as a matter of..gratitude, but as a matter of natural duty
and fairness."

Without achieving flights across

"Canada has been' developing a
work horse, and not a race horse,"
he said. Some, 200,000 square miles .of
unexplored territory havc been mapped'in five years, which is equivalent
to circling the world eight limes with
a mile wide strip photographed, the
speaker added.
lie pointed out that there was no
glamor of excitement' attached to this
world record which would be recognized as contributing to development
of the natural resources of Canada.
Formerly the geologist wasted 75 to
80 per cent, of his- time finding his
way about unpromising areas. This

Was In Command Of "Mystery
Ship" Pargust During War
Captain R. N. Stuart1 of the Canadian Pacific Service, tlie only Canadian nayaj. oflicer to receive a Victoria

bring the railway company's newest
passenger steamer, the Princess
Elaine,'from Glasgow to'Victoria, B.
C, whence it will enter the Vancou-,
ver-Nanaimo run early in May. The
vessel was built at Clydebank.
' Captain Stuart was one of the 300
officers in the Canadian Pacific Service who entered the royal navy during the war. He was in command of
the "mystery ship"" Pargust one day
when she was torpedoed by a submarine, From all indications the 'Par-
gust was a tramp steamer. A big hole
was blown in, her, by the Whitehead
and she soon developed a heavy list.
' All of the.crew .with the 'exception
of Stuart and a" fe\y as .daring, who
remained hidden aboard, fled in life
boats. When it appeared that the ship
was abandoned, the submarine.came
up'and circled its victim. Then came
action, Stuart and his . -little party
jumped to their posts, unmasked the
concealed guns and opened fire, with
the result that'the undersea craft was
sunk with- all its crew ��� except one
officer. and one man. '���
Stuart received the V.C. arid thc

feeling that one owes -money for

Earth's Outer Atmosphere
Consists Of Helium Gas Is Opinion
Of Scientist
One hundred miles above the surface of the earth tlie atmosphere consists almost wholly of helium gas, believes Sir William Napier Shav/-, eminent meteorologist.
If this conclusion Is right it will
never be .possible, it.is contended, for
aircraft to navigate the upper atmosphere.
In a new "manual of meteorology"
in whicli Sir'Napier Shaw sets forth
his view he deals with many other
matters bearing on atmospheric conditions.
,A He maintains that as tlie light of
auroras has been seen as high as
500 miles above the earth, gases' of
some kind must exist far out from
this globe.
Comparatively low clown -comes the
mosphere, 30 to 50 mhes up. It is this
layer which reflects wireless waves
and renders wireless signalling possible. '
Little Helps For This Week
"In quietness and in confidence
shall be your strength."���Isaiah xxx.
I would be quiet, Lord:
Nor tease nor fret:
Not one small need of mine
Wilt Thou forget.
Confidence is the secret of strength.
A mind may be still though active;
and the quietness which is part of the
confidence" we have in Him, the
Christ, is only found in the close abiding in Him,' emblemed in His own
parable of the Vine and the branches.���Rose Porter.

Clean-Up Days Set For
April 24th and 25tb
Another busy session fell to the lot of
the City Fathers on Monday evening,
when Mayor Gulley presided over the
regular meeting with Aldermen Taylor,
Forshaw, Peterson, Lofstad and Smith
in attendance.
.Copies of correspondence between the
Trustee and the bondholders were laid
before the Council together with figures
and  statistics   supplied  by  the ..City
' Clerk.   The negotiations carried on so
far with a view of obtaining better
terms, from the bondholders were considered satisfactory and some definite
information should be:available for the
next meeting.
, Letters from the Inspector of Municipalities outlining amendments to the
Municipal Act during/the recent legislative session were discussed and laid
over for' future reference,
The Finance committee had a report
���:��� covering operations for the year to date
which was more favorable than the corresponding period for 1927 this being
accounted for by slightly increased
revenue from all sources 0
The Clerk was asked to call a special
meeting of the School Board for the
purpose of submitting proposals from
\.the Council whereby a saving in fuel
.3 cost could be effected.
The Streets committee outlined proposed worlc for the year on various
sidewalks and streets and their proposals were accepted after a few minor
alterations had been agreed upon.
. Clean-up days were fixed for April
24th and 25th and all citizens are earnestly requested to co-operate to the
' fullest extent in cleaning up their
premises and any adjoining lots and
placing rubbish where it can be loaded
and removed. The Council desires to
point out that householders are legally
required to, hav.e their garbage removed regularly by the scavenger at
their own'expense and regret that
allow undue accumulation of- rubbish
in anticipation of the annual clean-up
days. Aldermen Forshaw, Lofstad and
Peterson kindly volunteered a day's
work on the clean-up as well as supplying a waggon and any other volunteer service will be welcomed by the
Tho Pound committee arranged to
meet at an early date to decide on a
new location for the pound. The enforcement of the Pound By-Law has
met with the generarapprovar of nearly all citizens and owners of cattle
will no doubt again endeavor to keep
their nuisances down to a minimum.
Three By-Laws were given final
reading and passed.

DURING the mediaeval period two neighboring towns in
the Old Country had long engaged in a rivalry as to
which brewed the best beer. During a dispute one day in
early spring, between two brew^masters, one from each of
the towns in question, it was claimed by one that the Beer
brewed by the other lacked strength. To settle thc dispute,
the following test was proposed: Each brew-master was to
consume a gigantic tankard of the beer brewed by his
opponent, after which he was to stand on one leg and thread
a needle. The loser claimed that a goat that had butted in
through the circle of men surrounding the opponents was
responsible for his downfall. The winner laughingly replied: ''It was the. Bock
(German word for goat) in the beer." From that time it became customary to brew a
special dark beer called "BOCK BEER" and place it on sale in the Spring of each year.
may be obtained on Saturday, April 7th, 1928, and thereafter until the limited supply
is gone, from the Government Liquor Stores, in bottles, or on draught in any licensed
place at the same price as regular beer.
Bock Beer is the BREWERS'. TREAT, an exceptional brew of high-grade Beer and  f
aged (lagered) for an unusually long period.   It is a very wholesome and nutritious I
v: beverage, the highest achievement of the skilled Brew-master.  -Order early to make
sure of a supply.   Bock Beer, brewed by the Vancouver Breweries
Limited, Westminster Brewery Limited, Rainier Brewing Company
of Canada Limited, Silver Spring Breweries Limited, and Victoria-
Phoenix Brewing Co. Limited is guaranteed to be absolutely pure
beer.    Order a case to your home for Easter.
